    The other day I had my wife and kids out on the skiff. Coming back in, about the 20 feet from the ramp my motor died. I crank it back up and it runs for a few seconds and cuts back out. If I crank it back up while giving it some throttle it runs but bogs down and smokes a little more than normal. The carb's have recently been cleaned and the motor has been running good before this issue.

    Any ideas where I should start my troubleshooting?

    Nope! The ignition switch was shorted out.
